Modern Times Pop-Up Shop 3

Hi everyone, just a quick little update. My original ink drawings going to be at Modern Times Pop-Up Shop 3 tomorrow. You are invited to the opening night of their launch eve party tomorrow, Friday April 20th 6-8pm at311 Smith St, Collingwood, Melbourne VIC 3066.

Modern Times Pop-Up Shop #3 will be housing itself in a space that needs to be seen to be believed. A huge multi level space with soaring ceilings, in Smith St, Collingwood, will be filled with Modern Times’ signature mix of mid-century furniture from Denmark combined with contemporary Australian art and design.

Husband and wife duo, Amy and Joel Malin, have cast the net even further afield this time, to source contemporary art and design from all over Australia including works on paper, textiles, ceramics, jewellery, glass and handmade leather accessories. The total number of artists involved this time is around fifty. “It’s a long way from the seven or eight we had at the first Modern Times Pop-Up Shop” Joel recalls.

Original art features on the walls at Modern Times. “The selection of work represents a visual variety but they all have a place amongst the mid-century\modernist aesthetic“, says Amy. Works include meticulous graphic compositions in pastel by Julian Martin, tapestries by Tim Gresham, photo media collages by Liesl Pfeffer and striking neon screenprints by Kate Banazi.

Albeit the impressive art, mid-century Danish furniture is still the main focus for Modern Times and new pieces include the masculine form of the Inca Chair by Arne Norell, the Hans Wegner GE236 sofa and many classic Danish leather sofas. “Arne Norell was actually a Swedish designer, but like Danish Modern design, Swedish Modern shared the same respect for functionality, natural materials and craftsmanship.”

Amy and Joel arrange the space in a way that feels homely and inviting. “We encourage our customers to sit on the sofas and take in the pieces and the space, there are so many lovely things and we like to make it feel like a great big living space”
